    What size baggie do I need for approx 12-week-old red broilers? Are 2 gal ziplocks big enough?

    I can fit a 20 week old roo (not a broiler though) in a 1 gallon bag with giblets and feet, no head.

    Hm, I can too. I was thinking the broilers would be bigger. My 20-week-old roo was a little scrawny. Maybe I'll have both sizes on hand just to be safe.

    I wished I had 2 gal the night we froze ours. Get both just in case!
